A Jam So Fast and Easy It's Like My Man Eddie Van Eating a Taco While Tapping Out a Solo


NOPA, Sf - Sometimes you just got home from work but you did not buy any groceries for a while and you have three slices of bread and a bit of olive oil sitting in a little puddle in a pan on the stove – and that's all. There is a tomato sauce container in the refrigerator. It is a little greenish whitish on top – do you think it is still good underneath that fuzz? No man, do not think about that. Hurry up Jeopardy! is on the TV! You need something to jam on five minutes ago!

Does this nightmare scenario make your skin crawl and your stomach shed acid tears? NO. It shouldn't because fortunately you possess the ingredients for a highly expedient and delicious jam. Drizzle the rest of that olive oil onto a slice of bread. Sprinkle liberally with salt. Done. JAMZONE for $2000, ALEX.

Do you like to kick things up a notch like Emeril? I bet you have a little dried sweet basil in your spice rack. Throw it on there. From afar your great grandmother grins and lets out a quiet shout: MOLTO BENE!
